Tyrese Maxey, Kahlil Whitney, other Kentucky targets make Jordan Brand Classic roster

Kentucky will have (at least) two representatives at the 2019 Jordan Brand Classic in April.

The official rosters for the annual high school All-Star game have been released, and future Wildcats Tyrese Maxey and Kahlil Whitney each made the cut.

Outside of those two, five-star forward prospects and major Kentucky targets Keion Brooks Jr. and Jaden McDaniels also made the team and will be teaming up with the current UK commits on the away team.

Brooks will be making his official college announcement next week, while McDaniels is still well over a month away from deciding.

In terms of other familiar names, former Kentucky targets Cole Anthony, Vernon Carey Jr., Anthony Edwards, Jalen Lecque, and James Wiseman also made the roster.

John Wall, DeMarcus Cousins, Brandon Knight, Anthony Davis, Michael Kidd-Gilchrist, De’Aaron Fox, Malik Monk, Tyler Herro, and Keldon Johnson are just a few current or former Wildcats to participate in the event.

The Jordan Brand Classic, usually in Brooklyn, NY, will be making the move to Las Vegas for the first time in event history. The game will be played on Saturday, April 20 at 5:00 p.m. PST (8:00 p.m. ET).
